Noteworthy at Compose - MongoDB 3.2.18 available


This is your weekly summary of Compose news for those changes and updates which can make your life easier. In this edition, there's a new version of MongoDB available and we remind you of the past week of Compose Articles.

MongoDB 3.2.18 now available

MongoDB users for version 3.2.11 and later can now in-place upgrade to MongoDB 3.2.18. In-place upgrades are performed by going to Settings in the Compose Console for a deployment, selecting 3.2.18 in the drop down and clicking the Change Version button.

For users of 3.2.10 and earlier, currently if you want to upgrade to 3.2.18, you'll need to do a backup and restore to a new deployment. We're working to remove that restriction and will let you know here in Noteworthy when it's lifted.

Compose Articles

In the week just passed, Compose Articles has looked at how to use Redis to cache API requests, using Python to talk to Redis, RethinkDB and RabbitMQ and updated readers with the latest news from the database world, like MySQL's move towards OpenSSL for all.

That's it for this week's Noteworthy at Compose. Onwards to next week!
